New Phone Systeir

Put Into Operatiol


Tail-Twisting No Longer Neces
sary In Order to Raise
Central

Port St. Joe definitely left the
small town class Wednesday night
at least as far as its telephone
service is concerned, when a new
and up-to-the-minute switchboard
was cut in at central office in the
Florida Bank building.
The old switchboard, which had
reached the ripe old age of thirty
years, has been relegated to the
junk heap and no longer is it
necessary for telephone users to
twist the tail of their telephone to
raise central. All that is necessary
now is to gently lift the receiver,
whereupon a light flashes on the
switchboard and central plugs in
to ask for your number.
The new layout also takes work
off of the operators' shoulders, for
when the connection is made the
bell on the phone called is auto-
matically rung until the receiver
is picked up. It will also be un-
necessary for central to break in
occasionally with her "waiting?"
query, for when the receiver is
placed back on the hook a light
flashes, informing her that the
conversation is finished.
Patrons are asked not to "crank"
any more when calling central, as
this causes, the light on the board
to flicker on and off and-has a ten-
dency to give the operator the
jitters and spots before the eyes.
The St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph company is to be con-
gratulated upon'this forward step
in the improvement of telephone
service in our city.

Generaliasimo Francisco Franco, El Caudillo of the new Spain, is shown (center) with Premier Benito
Mussolini of Italy (rightJ and Franco's foreign minister, Ramon Serrano Suner, as they conferred at
Bordighera, Italy. It was officially announced then that Italy and Spain had reached "complete agree-
ment" on their wartime roles. Reports from Vichy later, however, say that Franco flatly refused, de-
spite terrific Axis pressure, to grant Spanish assistance for an attack on Britain's Gibraltar. Franco
also held a conference with France's chief of state, Marshal Petain, at Montpellier, France.

Saving Project


Port 5,. Joe to Have $108f,92
Spent On Paving and
New Arteries

President 'Roosevelt last Friday
placed his o-ficial okeh on the
Port St. Joe city-wide WPA street
project which calls, for an expen-
diture of $108,192, the government
to provide $62,057 and the city
$46,135.
No particular streets are speci-
fied in the project, the approved
application merely stating "for
improving streets throughout the
city of Port St. Joe, including
clearing, grubbing, grading and
surfacing of streets, construction
of necessary drainage structures,
curb and gutter, sidewalks, and
performing other incidental work."
This project will indeed be a
boon to Port St. Joe, as the rapid
growth of the city has made it al-
most mandatory that additional
streets be surfaced, both in the
business and residential sections,
and this has been .impossible, as
no funds have been available for
such work. The dirt and sand
streets at times are almost impass-
able and the maintenance cost of
such streets is almost pi-ohiiil-) .
As soon as the project receives
approval of the state WPA office
we can expect to see work started
on our streets and avenues.

ALL WE CAN DO IS WAIT AND SEE
Somewhere in the mind of every citizen of
Port St. Joe lurks this grim and disquieting
question: "Will the United States enter the
war?"
About every writer and speaker in the
country has been attempting to satisfactorily
answer that question for some time. You cam
find irresistibly logical arguments which
make our entry into the conflict seem as in-
evitable as death and taxes-and you can find
equally logical arguments which attempt to
prove we.are in small danger of being drawn
in. And, as the debate rages on, a good many
of us, including the editor of The Star, who
make no pretense to being experts, find our-
selves sinking deeper into confusion.
The standard polls still indicate that the
American people are opposed to war, even
as they favor aid to England with "all steps
short of war." At the same time, the Ameri-
can people, going by the same polls, are con-
vinced that if England falls we may be next
on Hitler's list of victims.
Take whatever stand you like,, but all we
can all do is just sit back and wait and see.

A BUILDER OF AMERICAN CITIZENS
For the second year, the local American
Legion post is sponsoring a junior baseball
team in Port St. Joe and this year such a
move is doubly important, for the building
of healthy bodies and active minds is an im-
portant part of any system of national de-
fense. The co-ordination of mind and muscle
is a vitally important quality for the men
who are to be a part of the. defense of this
nation.
The American Legion junior baseball team
will play a very definite part in building the
mental and physical sides of the boys of Port
St. Joe who participate, and these qualifica-
tions are necessary to the men who are to
defend America. Junior baseball is also a
great teacher of discipline-a lesson which
must be learned by those Americans who ap-
preciate America and who are willing to dem-
onstrate that appreciation by taking part In
the building of an army, navy and marine
corps.
The Port St. Joe junior team will be
limited to fifteen players, in accordance with
national rules, and all boys in the city are
eligible who had not reached their seven-
teenth birthday by January 1, 1941. As the
primary purpose of the junior baseball
team is the teaching of good sportsmanship
and good citizenship, those boys who make
the team can rest assured that they will be
the pick of the crop and should indeed be
proud to be included on the lineup.
All boys of the city within the age limit
requirements are urged to come out for this
team, and their parents should do their utmost
to see that John or Joe or Bill or Chuck,
or whatever their son's name happens to be,

WE WONT GET RICH
It looks now as if we wouldn't get rich on
the war. Sales ;ire up on airplanes and metals
and steel products. Cotton, on the other hand,
is piling up a surplus since the war has dras-
tically cut exports. Other farm crops are not
going to find any big market abroad either.
There is also the general loss of export in the
war zone which might very well offset the
plane sales.
Europe is going into this war on a program
of self-sufficiency. They have been preaching
that for seven years in Berlin and Rome and
Tokio. And Great Britain is actually carrying
on a war and trying to keep tup her exports
at the same time. She is not doing this suc-
cessfully, of course, but neither should the
United States expect the big market of 25
years ago.
Finally, if and when the war is ended, the
world may expect an unprecedented race for
trade supremacy. If the dictators win it, no
holds will be barred as we have already seen
in the use of the depreciated Aski mark in
South America. If the Allies win, they will
need all the trade they can get to restore
prosperity and pay war debts.
This leaves sharp warning for Americans.
Granted we don't want to profit on the blood
of others, it looks this time as if we're not
going t, get back "good times" by the war
route. Today, more than at any time in our
history, the solution of our unemployment
and depression rests right at home. We have
only to look at the record to know that wai
prosperity is dear prosperity. We are still
trying to get adjusted to the maladjustments
of that last great "boom." Maybe it will ue
better if we never get rich again.-The Mi-
ami Post.

RIGHT!
Special populationn bracket" laws passed
by the legisalture, in many instances to avoid
the constitutional requirement that local bills
be advertised in advance of introduction, hav,
created considerable confusion now that the
1940 census has shown many changes in the
population of counties.
Comptroller Lee has, announced that lhr
will report the situation to the 1941 legisla-
ture with a request for clarification. Mean-
while, he is withholding distribution of race
track taxes and proceeding cautiously in ad-
ministering other funds affected by these
population changes. And he is right.
It is unfortunate that the legislature must
be called on to untangle this confusion at a
time when it has many important problems
to solve, but there seems no other way out.
The new legislature can, however, help
prevent such a legalistic tangle in the future
by stopping the practice of camouflaging lo-
cal bills with population provisions. The
state supreme court has frequently invali-
dated population laws, but such laws remain
in effect unless they are challenged in the
courts.
Meanwhile, if some of the counties find
themselves pinched because state-collected
tax monev is not paid to them promptly, they
should blame the legislators responsible for
the tricky population laws.-Tampa Times


THE LIGHTNING STRIKES


She had been a young girl dur- build the armaments we need for


ing that war which was fought to
"end all wars." Remember? And
she recalled that they had saved
peach seeds for gas mask and tin-
foil for something or other. She
remembered meatless days and su-
gar rations and, flour that was
never white. Everyone was called
upon to do something during that
war, even if it was only to go
without candy.
And so, as the new war, that is
still without a name, grew more
threatening and the United States
began to arm for defense, she
wanted to do something again,
even if it was only to go without.
"But without what?'' she asked
the man who knows about things.
"Should we eat less food at our
house? Or buy fewer clothes and
put off painting the house?"
The man who knows things sur-
prised her with his answer: "Eat
all you want," he said', "and be
thankful. Buy new clothes. Paint
your house. There is still enough,

A TALL FISH STORY

(FNS)-A story comes out this
week from the annual game fish-
ing tournament sponsored by the
Ft. Lauderdale Anglers associa-
tion which is a worthy addition to
anybody's collection of "tall tales."
Steve Gandy, a diver at Davie,
so the story goes, was working un-
der water around some old pil-
ings. He spotted a gigantic snook
catching a little "shut-eye" be-
tween some rocks. Gandy grabbed
the snook with his bare hands and
hauled him to the surface and
landed him. The upok weighed
332/ .pounda--th' largest' .augit in
these waters in a long time.

IN the five generations since 1749, we Americans
have performed the heroic task of clearing, popu-
lating, farming, industrializing and civilizing a
country lar3 r than England, France, Germany,
Spain and Italy put together.
Because we have looked always forward and
upward, and have worked hard, we have achieved
the highest standard of living in the world.
'One of the most potent of all the forces that
have created this living standard is advertising,
which inspires us to want always the new and
better things and ways of life.
Of late years it has been the fashion among
our radical reformers to attack advertising as an


economic waste.
How silly, in view of the magnificent service
it has rendered us! Let's encourage it and use
it for an ever brighter future.
